Today Slipknot–the subject of our new Slipknot special collector’s issue–posted on their official website a comment from percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan regarding the band’s performance this weekend at Rock in Rio in Brazil. Embedded in the post, in the number “666,” is a link to a new “people=shit” website, featuring the image below and hidden video content. You can visit the site right here and read Clown’s comments below. A 10th anniversary edition of Slipknot’s 2001 album, Iowa, will be released on November 1.
“For the past year, we’ve been hearing non-stop about how the Knot needs to come to South America. Literally on a daily basis. For the past month, these same maggots have been hitting us up counting down to Saturday’s show on a daily basis. When art can equal that kind of desire, you have God.
“We can’t wait to throw down with you. Get ready. Hail the maggots. Hail the Knot.”
